Hi, I'm Julia!
I'm a Industrial Designer and Researcher currently bringing products to life at Leadoff Studio and creating a more inclusive society at Open Style Lab. Some of my recent achievements are: The winner of the 2018 Core77 x A/D/O Designer in Residence, a finalist in the 2018 FastCompany World Changing Ideas (WCI) Awards and first place in product design for the 2017 International Design Awards (IDA).
I am Chinese American and have lived in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Long Island, NY before pursuing a dual-degree from Parsons School of Design and Eugene Lang College in New York City. I am fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese. My education, multicultural background and love for traveling has given me a global and culturally-driven perspective that challenges the design of products to be more socially, environmentally and economically inclusive.
